Christian Boltanski’s solo retrospective “Storage Memory” is the largest exhibition mounted by the world renowned French artist. From an early age, Boltanski suffered from depression and refused to go to school. To keep himself occupied, he began drawing and painting, which led to a large body of work expressing his personal psyche. He has experimented in all genres but it was his conceptual monuments to the Jewish school children in Vienna that prompted his critical acclaim in the late 1980s. Mining the broad theme of memories and reminders, Julie Chun (Adjunct Professor of Art History) will guide us through a rare exhibition that will leave a lasting impression.
